Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

100% Marlborough Pinot Noir, in a refreshing and fruit focused style, Oyster Bay's 2020 Rosé is a great for entertaining year-round, with charcuterie, finger foods, grilled fish, and summer salads with fresh strawberries. Tasted July 2021. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely, refreshing and light. Aromas of strawberry, lime and a hint of orange. Light bodied on the palate, with bright acidity on the palate. Berry and fruit flavours are ripe with a hint of tartness and this wine has a crisp, clean finish. Sure to be a crowd pleaser. Pair with fried calamari or other rich appetizers.
Love Oyster Bay 2020 Pinot Noir rosé and love the price too. From Marlborough, South Island, this is a fragrant, juicy rosé with bright cherry, strawberry cream and fresh melon flavours on the palate. Chill and enjoy with charcuterie, salads topped with ripe strawberries, and grilled fish dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
